    my '97 80 40th baseline list (it's really, really long, and no pics)

    So I'm about 3.5 months into the 80 lifestyle, err...addiction, and I have to say, I'm loving it. I've wrenched very little in the past my cars, but I'm finding it therapeutic. I knew what I was getting into, no regrets! I just finished renovating our house, so needed another excuse to...
